Oh boy....

Unless your head is in your ass you know there was a mass-shooting at an Oregon college today.  What you might have missed is being reported by USA Today:

Moore said she saw her teacher get shot in the head, apparently after the gunman came into the classroom. At that point, Moore told the newspaper, the shooter ordered everyone to get on the ground. The shooter then asked people to stand up and state their religion and then started firing, Moore said..

So given the number of people shot was there no "right answer", was there an answer not given that might have been the "right answer" or worse, was there a "right answer"?

Stay tuned on this one folks -- and both listen and read quite carefully if there's any sort of explanation on that point or the media and others try to bury it.

Update: Uhhhh....(yes, I saved that screenshot)

Cabot "Wealth Destruction" clown car nonsense.

"There's all these people who need 8, 9% returns and they're going to be coming into stocks."

One question: What happens when they come in and the price of stocks go down instead of up?

No details right now, but this is rumored to be announced this evening.

Stay tuned.

Update: No longer rumored, Fox is running it.

Hot off the press....

VW is being accused of rigging their ECU (computer) software so as to "cheat" on EPA tests for their late-model diesel vehicles.  This potentially comes with fines and with a recall requirement.

That doesn't necessarily sound so bad (other than the fine) unless VW is unable to meet the specs without the software cheat.

In that case this could be big trouble; I do not know if the EPA can order the vehicles off the road in this circumstance, but if they can.....

Stay tuned.
